CiviCON London reunion / Oct London Meetup
Wow, didn't that summer pass quick! No sooner did all the Brits have on our shorts then now it's raincoats and scarves.
After a brief summer hiatus while we all readjusted our wardrobes, the London meetups are back!
First off, a big thank you to all of you who came over and made CiviCON London and the post conference sprint such a special event this year. It's been fantastic to see so many different people contributing to the project and in so many different ways!

WORKING TOWARDS DEVELOPING A CIVICRM COMMUNITY IN MEXICO
Mónica Tapia-Alvarez and Isobel Platts-Dunn
In 2009, with Common Cause International technical assistance and while developing a new citizen advocacy model for educational reform, we assessed the importance of IT solutions for managing members, petitions and donations from a large number of citizens. The IT solutions that US-based organizations used were discarded because their license was extremely expensive for Latin American organizations (Convio annual license cost is around US$50,000) and had in-built US representatives and media that was useless for Latin American contexts.

Tonight found Giant Rabbit hosting the local CiviMeetup in Berkeley, CA, where we talked Drupal Webform Tips and Tricks (and if you want to support CiviCRM payment integration in Drupal webforms, you might consider giving a few dollars to our Make It Happen Campaign) and a few basic data how to's.
We had a good mix of WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal users, and Civi users old a new - and a good mix of cocktails to ease us out of the workday.
Oh, and then there was the CiviCRM Trailer. That happened.
A small but very enthusiastic group came. We decided to move the meetup to the second Wednesday of each month. The location may alternate between Clearwater and Plant City, FL. Each person described their use of CiviCRM and many questions were asked and answered. Don Latshaw, fresh from CiviCon in SF presented "What's new in 4.3". There was an equal mix of Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress users. The next meetup will be June 12th and we'll look at CiviCase in depth.
This Meetup was kindly hosted by Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, at their office in Holborn.
Jamie Novick (of Compucorp) demonstrated CiviMail as a mass means of communicating by email and SMS.
Owen Bowden (of LLR) demonstrated how to do surveys using CiviMail and WebForm-Civi which enables the key results of the survey questions to be stored in CiviCRM.
George Steven (of The Latin Mass Society) gave a very useful outline of how to install CiviCRM on a shoestring buget (presentation attached).
Dave Melkman (of Manta Ray Media) presented the key changes in CiviCRM 4.3.
Jamie Novick described a new...Read more
